ACCORDING TO SPORTS PODIATRIST AND DOCTOR OF PODIATRIC MEDICINE, CARL ZINKIN, "THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS TO INJURE YOURSELF RUNNING, BUT NOT HAVING A PROPER SHOE THAT SUPPORTS YOU IN THE RIGHT WAY CAN PUT EXCESS STRAIN ON YOUR BODY."  IMPROPER FOOTWEAR CAN LEAD TO INJURIES SUCH AS PLANTAR FASCIITIS, ACHILLE'S TENDONITIS AND EVEN STRESS FRACTURES FROM IMPROPER, POOR FITTING OR OVERUSED SHOES.  THE STANDARD RUNNING SHOE LIFE RANGES FROM 300 TO 500 MILES.

WHEN IT COMES TO RUNNING YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TRY TO PURCHASE THE BEST SHOE POSSIBLE.  IF YOU ARE A SERIOUS RUNNER IT IS USUALLY IMPORTANT TO BE WEARING PROPER CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  THAT INVOLVES A VISIT TO YOUR FOOT SPECIALIST, EITHER A CHIROPODIST, FOOT DOCTOR OR PODIATRIST.  THEY CAN USUALLY ADVISE YOU ON THE CORRECT SHOE TO PURCHASE DEPENDING ON YOUR SKILL LEVEL, WEIGHT, TERRAIN YOU WILL BE RUNNING ON, MILAGE YOU WILL BE RUNNING AND ANY PREDISPOSING STRUCTURAL FAULTS, SUCH AS OVERPRONATION, ETC.  THEY CAN ALSO REFER TO YOU A SHOE STORE WHICH SPECIALIZE IN RUNNING AND SPORTS SHOES AND HAVE KNOWLEDGABLE STAFF.
